Chestnut Tree is one of the nicest places you’ll find to eat on or around campus, with the most options! Some might think Chestnut is too far from the main hustle-and-bustle of campus, but they’ve obviously never tried the dining hall’s freshly made and hot meals. Recently renovated, Chestnut Residence’s dining hall is bright, open and colourful, providing a great space to eat your meals and hang out with friends. During the school year, the dining hall is all-you-can-eat, with menus boasting a variety of dishes to suit everyone’s needs. Halal options are served at lunch and dinner, as are vegetarian entrees. Vegan options are included in the dinner menu, and Lactaid and soy milk are available with every meal.
At breakfast, you can expect arrays of fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, a curated Chefs Table egg dish, and a muesli bar. Lunch offers soups, a deli and salad bar, hot meals, Chefs Table vegetarian and meat entrees, a pasta or fried rice bar, salads, pizza, and dessert. Dinner takes lunch to the next level, adding a vegetarian station to build your own custom veggie meals, and adds another Chefs Table entree for everyone’s enjoyment.
If you live in Chestnut, you can also sign up for their Take Away Lunch program, so no matter where you are, you can be sure to have a well-prepared Chestnut meal for lunch.
